Italy 10-LIRE (KM90) Pegasus

Pegasus is the winged white stallion of Greek Mythology. He is the son of Poseidon (God of the sea, earthquakes, and horses) and Medusa (once beautiful but turned to a monster for making out with Poseidon in Athena's temple). You can read a brief story on the legend here.

This beautiful realization of Pegasus was created by artist Giuseppe Romagnoli and engraver Pietro Giampaoli. The coin was issued from 1946 to 1950.
